Kanye West causes uproar 110 replies

Recently, Kanye West played a show in Sydney, Australia, and urged everyone to get up on their feet for one of his songs. Unfortunately, there happened to be a group of disabled people in the audience; thus, West refused to start one of his songs until they too, stood to their feet.

"I can’t do this song, I can’t do this show until everybody stand up. This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable".

In the midst of frustration, West eventually gave a pass to those who had a "handicap pass and get special parking and s**t". West continued to wait until one of the disabled audience members waved a prosthetic limb signaling that they could not stand for West's performance.

New Taravana Album 3 replies

Progressive metal project Taravana has released two new songs from its forthcoming EP A
Visible Chill. "Howl" and "Uisge Dhè" mark a notable change in sound for the project,
as piano-driven Gothic rock gives way to an instrumental approach combining elements of
power metal and atmospheric black metal.

A Visible Chill is a concept album based around the Greyman legend of Scotland's
Cairngorm mountains. It is composed of seven movements that run seamlessly together; the
album as a whole takes inspiration from bands including Ulver and Paysage D'hiver,
infusing heavier sections ("Howl") with extended symphonic and folk interludes ("Uisge
Dhè"). The full EP will be released this winter.

Taravana is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Alex Newton. Its self-titled debut
was released independently last year. All of Taravana's music is available for free ...more
